7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going home and pouting, tomorrow my plans include cleaning and Sunday, I want to finish up my nephew’s blanket if I have time!
And the MI-5. Jim sez: It is amazing how sometimes minor decisions put us in the situations that end up being life changing.
Question 1. Tell us of a time when a small decision had a major positive impact on your life. I decided to babysit for a friend of my mom’s. It had a positive impact because one job turned into two and eventually I was babysitting for her on a very regular basis (as in three to four times a week). I was part of their family and I loved it. Its how I paid for school.
Question 2. Tell us of a time when a a small decision had a negative impact. I really can’t think of one. I am sure there is at least ONE but I can’t think of it. Well maybe when I traded in my Chevy Lumina for the Rav4 in 2000. Only because apparently my dad wanted to buy the lumina back…but I swear I don’t remember that. So when I came home with my brand new Rav4 he wasn’t too pleased. I mean he got over it pretty quickly…but still. That’s all I can really think of.
Question 3. Do you have a mental process such as a test that major or minor decisions must pass? Well I want to make sure that any decision I make is best for me and my future without hurting anyone elses.
Question 4. Outside of deciding to marry or asking your spouse to marry you (where that applies) what do you think is the best decision you have ever made in your life and why? Leaving the teaching credential program. I was not cut out to be a teacher- I would have been miserable and the kids wouldn’t have gotten the education that they needed.
Question 5. What made you decide to be an MI-5 participant? Bill asked me…I thought it looked and sounded like fun. And you know what? It is!
